Over 150 hopeful youngsters entered the competition at Chantry High, and were reduced to just 15 finalists after 2 gruelling auditions during the contest which took place.
The school hall was bursting at the seams as parents teachers and pupils cheered for their favourite pop idols.
True to the original TV program, the students were judged rigorously by a panel of outside judges, among them promoter, John Haessenthaler.
